I601: Introduction To Complex Systems
This course aims at providing an introduction to complex systems and networks. The course will touch several topics of traditional and current research in complexity science. Students will learn mathematical and statistical concepts of the science of complexity, and, by being exposed to a great deal of real examples, they will learn how to measure and characterize complex features in natural systems. These notions and analytic tools are increasingly in demand to approach complex problems in many different disciplines including biology, social science, informatics, neuroscience, and economics.
